AT THE tender age of 11, Carson Huey-You became the youngest college graduate in Texas Christian University’s (TCU) history.
Carson, now 13, was only 10 when he applied, leading to some interesting challenges.
“He was completely off the grid when it came to even the most basic of things, like completing an application or completing a financial aid form,” Dean of Admissions Ray Brown told NBC 5. “Because of his date of birth, those forms would not accept his application.”
He went onto take on a full course load that includes physics, calculus, history and religion.
He scored a 1770 on his SAT, was co-valedictorian of his high school senior class and speaks Mandarin Chinese, TCU’s student newspaper reported.
Carson hopes to graduate with a Ph.D before he’s 20 and claims calculus relaxes him.
Given that Carson, who plans to become a quantum physicist, was devouring chapter books by age 2 and attending high school by age 5, the boy genius might reach his goal of a PhD before age 20.
